There is an adage which teaches us that, “you should never go back”. This saying is usually used in reference to romantic relationships, but perhaps it should also serve as a warning to authors wanting to revisit past glories; though the temptation to do so is, of course, perfectly understandable. Returning to the scene of a previous triumph no doubt seems like the safe and easy path to take. But how often does it turn out not to be the case? Certainly, The Ambassador’s Mission, provides a perfect illustration as to the wisdom of the words, “you should never go back”.
